I actually really liked the PV box this month, there was a full sized Pacifica lip gloss that's not super shiny or sparkly, just adds a bit of tint and shine, a full sized nail polish from a.dorn, a pretty nice sized sample of loose eyeshadow, and then a sample of a cleansing oil and a face moisturizer. It for sure made up for last month's crappy box.

Yeah I liked the PV box a lot, I liked getting 2 full sized items at least :) I like the nail color a lot but I like gold nail polish. I also love the cleansing oil, but I have a soft spot for cleansing oils.

I got a blue-green polish in my PV box and not thrilled since it looks like the same color I got from them, from a different brand, a couple months ago. Other than that pretty happy with this months box. I am disappointed that the cleansing oil is not water soluble, since in my mind that is what a cleansing oil should be. If it's just wipe-off, it's just an oil. That's my motto.

I got the blue-green polishes in two separate PV boxes from different brands too, but I'm such a deranged polish hoarder that they're subtly different enough to keep me happy.

I did not care for the PV - face oil stuff, it did nothing to remove makeup...

Oh and if you get the Vegan Cuts box (which after 1 month I cancelled) you most likely will see duplicate items or the same brand over a few boxes. My friend was contacted to be in the box - they wanted 150,00 items from her...Um????

I don't have a problem with repeat brands/items, but not when it's something that takes forever to use up, like lip balm, and certainly not in the same flavor.

Yeah, I don't mind getting multiple products from the same brand or the same product in multiple colors - there are only so many vegan products available, so there's a much smaller pool to draw from. Some repeats are expected. But I should not get three of the exact same lip balm in the same flavor over the course of 6 months.

It more than likely could be the same product over and over, some companies just make 1 type of product. I remember in my first/only VC box I got 2 lip balms, I love lip balms but think that is not much of a variety. I would not want another Fanciful Fox balm, I did not care for how dry it was.

I really like the MM brown shimmery shade of eyeshadow I got from my PV box this month. Also the Pacifica gloss was a really great treat.

i finally got my vegan cuts box today, whee!

is the lip balm you guys are all bummed about the fantastic fox peanut butter one? because i actually LOVE that one, and i was secretly excited, and then i didn't get one. ha! instead, i got a meow meow tweet lip balm in grapefruit clove. so! if anyone is interested in trading, i'm totally up for that. ;)

also, i think the lippie is just a bonus item for everyone; i don't see a lip balm listed on the postcard so it must just be an extra perk.

my pouch is black and has a dog on it. i like my mini nail polish colors (the set is called harlem lights) and i've never used color club before, so that will be a fun way to try several shades. i don't have strong opinions about the other samples in the box, but i think i'll end up trying them all, so i guess that's saying something at least.

not a fan of the soapbox sample from VC. there aren't any ingredients listed, so i'm not 100% sure, but i think maybe it's slightly licorice scented? like minty licorice. it was gross. my skin feels nice, but the whole time i was in the shower i was like, "wash it off! wash it off!"

So as far as I can tell, this month's PV box contained 4 full sized products. It's got a $50 value, and there's a full sized lip butter from ellovi, a full sized eye liner from BWC, a 1 ounce pot of face and body scrub from Bella Pelle, and a 4 ounce tub of vanilla shea butter body cream from beurre that smells like cupcakes.

I literally can't believe I got all this for $15. I'm suuuuper happy with this month's box.

I really like the PV box. I'm all about lip balm and Shea butter lotion. The scrub is nice. I'm not much of an eyeliner person but I'll try it.

Yeah great PV box this month. I got a BWC mascara instead of eyeliner- happy about that as I'm running low, though it's been ages since I've used their mascara.

I'm using the brown liner for my brows! I only wear black eyeliner around my eyes, but the brown had a really nice neutral base color, and didn't pull orange, and the pencil was on the harder/drier side so I figured it wouldn't smear. I wore it today and it held up well, I like the Anastasia brow wiz pencil better, but I figure this will be nice to have as a back up.

I got the black eyeliner. I would have preferred brown since I have a lot of black eyeliner but not a single brown.
